Thanks for the heads up on the versioning change.  I must confess that I 
don't understand git very well, being more of a Mercurial partisan, so I 
had just issued

     unix$ git fetch origin
     unix$ git pull

which had worked before to follow the stable branch of ASDF.

I don't expect that you are mixing development on the stable branch, so 
I'll have to poke around the git documentation to figure out what I am 
doing wrong.

is nothing to compare to it now."
